--- Comment #2 from Andrew "RhodiumToad" Gierth <andrew@tao11.riddles.org.uk> ---
The command being assembled has _one_ arg, not three, and that arg is 266
characters long.

"The resulting arguments, after replacement is done, will not be allowed to
grow beyond replsize (or 255 if no -S flag is specified) bytes..."

266 is greater than 255 so it fails.
